Volunteer with us!
Once a week, Ryan Greenblum and her daughter Sheerly volunteer at Greater Opportunities in our Day Program. They help with various activities such as cooking, art, computers, music and more. Sheerly really enjoys teaching the consumers computer skills. She works with three consumers at a time, they pick a subject to research, they come up with questions, and she teaches them how to use the internet how to find answers to their questions. Ryan often teaches cooking classes to two groups at a time. From cookies to pasta to chicken dishes, they have been busy cooking up tasty dishes that they eat at the end of class.
“It is amazing to see the interaction between the staff and the consumers, but also how kind and gentle the consumers are to each other,” says Ryan. She understands how challenging it can be taking care of an adult with a disability, as Sheerly has high functioning autism and requires much patience and understanding. Ryan says, “Volunteering at Greater Opportunities has been truly rewarding for both of us.” If you would like to get involved and make a difference, we would love to have you join us!
